Itís late April now and Iím grateful the weather is getting warmer. Life is settling down a bit since my stepdad died and my mom is starting to get her bearings back. Weíve spent a lot of time with her going up every other weekend for awhile. Sheís had a few firsts to get through without him, first Valentines, her birthday, his birthday, Easter; but sheís getting there and weíre grateful sheís doing okay. I still call her often but itís not every day anymore; now I call every other day and she sounds happier most days.
My daughter recovered from surgery but broke her foot one night on her way to the bathroom. She missed the bottom step and tumbled. Poor girl just canít seem to get a break but sheís in a walking cast now and out looking for a job againÖ
My health is okay. Iíve lost a few pounds in spite of not logging exercise or food but Iíve still got a ways to go. I have my good days and bad days with pain but itís all tolerable. Iím walking a lot so the hips are protesting (arthritis) but it helps and if itís really bad, I take some painkillers at night. Iím taking way less than I used to and go for days without taking anything so Iím really happy. I heard about a supplement (?) called D Ribose that I get at a health food store. It helps with the energy level and fibromyalgia pain and as long as I stay away from salt, Iím doing okay.
Thank you to all my spark friends for all the support you have shown me. It has really helped to know that Iím not alone and there is a place I can go to just vent and let go.
Life is good. Iím so happy the weather is getting warmer. Iím hoping weíve seen the last of snow until next winter and am looking forward to getting back out into my garden.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter and that life is treating you well.
